Heavy Monsoon rain in Lucknow, part of UP

Heavy rains lashed Lucknow and other parts of Uttar Pradesh early on Thursday, bringing respite from the hot and muggy weather. The downpour is likely to continue for the next few days, a Met department official said. Heavy rainfall was reported from the cities of Lucknow and Jhansi and the districts of Barabanki, Unnao and Faizabad. However, there is no rain yet in the rest of North India. India's largest dam, the Bhakra Nangal, has reached a critical level and there is a similar situation at seven reservoirs in the North. This has worsened the power situation further with major outages across Punjab, Haryana, and Delhi. Monsoon rains have been 30 per cent deficient so far and the weather office data showed 82 per cent of the area of the country, including the granary states of Punjab and Haryana, are receiving deficient or scanty rainfall.
